What does a typical day at work look like for you?
My role involves overseeing the library operations through managing the budget and providing leadership. I really enjoy connecting with external library partners and ensuring our faculty and students feel supported in their research needs. My tasks each day are varied, but they all point towards helping our users become lifelong learners.

What do you do when you aren’t working?
Beyond spending time with my wife and three kids, I enjoy playing piano and trombone, watching all types of sports, playing golf, and doing Sudoku or logic puzzles.
